Jjajang myeon (again!)
Like I said in my previous post, we ate Koreanized Chinese food for lunch today. I planned to do a Coffee Prince-inspired tour for my friends today. I thought of bringing them to the Chinese restaurant where Yoon Eun Hye and Gong Yoo’s characters ate “tang-su-yuk” or sweet and sour pork. The place is called “San-dong-su-gyo-dae-wang” or “Chinese Dumpling King.” It is located on a street more popularly known as “Yeonhee-dong mat gil” or “Yeonhee-dong’s Street of Flavors”, for the many restaurants located in the area.
We reached the place at 3:15PM and found it closed! They are close from 3-5 PM on weekdays. We were a bit disappointed but not totally disheartened 🙂 We just took pictures outside and moved on. I have a not-so-nice picture of the exterior. I was carrying my son and trying to avoid the traffic.
We walked some more and found another Chinese restaurant. It’s called “Jin Bo” and has a very nice interior. I was “famished” that I didn’t bother to take pictures inside! We ordered four “sam seon jjajang myeon” (5,000 won each) and “tang-su-yuk” or sweet&sour pork (small for 14,000 won). They didn’t offer water but a fragrant jasmine tea. After lunch (a late one!), we took the taxi to the 1st Shop of Coffee Prince. Hmm, I might need Fentraphen later with all that food!I’ll blog about this later… we have a three-day weekend and we’re going camping!
